[MUSIC PLAYING] Why is change so hard? Nobody actually taught you how to change.

I'm a wellness coach. I have one job, to help you reach and maintain your health and wellness goals.

I'm going to help you take the foods you eat now and shift them to be healthier.

Give you information and strategies that can help you to quit for life.

And just get you to move more.

I needed to start where I was. I didn't do anything dramatic.

Five years ago, I was overweight. I didn't like my image, so I decided to do something about it.

And I find that there is no end to what you can learn.

The act of smoking or chewing is just part of your daily routine. The good news is the instant you quit your body begins to heal.

Yeah, I go shopping every week, like most people. But I don't really have a plan.

And the beauty of coming prepared to grocery store is that my car looks a little bit like that my plate visual that we're always talking about.

We're here for you so you can live a healthier, happier life and do the things you aspire to do with the people you care most about.

We have a variety of professionally trained wellness coaches to support you no matter what changes you seek. Keep up the good work, and we'll talk to you soon.
